sometimes we get tiered of having to buy lipglosses that dry are lips, or need a shade on a certain day, but don't have it. or the best one, when one of your favorite eye shadows brake... well doesn't have to be your favorite color. i have those days alot. well you don't have to be worried about drying out or chapping your sensative lips anymore. im going to tell you how to make your own lipgloss. i will put the instructions and ingrediants in the quotation marks starting now!! "okay things your going to need: a flat plate or surface, a plastic spoon, or small plastic spatchula, a small container vaseline or protelium jelly and some eyeshadow (yes i said eyeshadow). well lets begin with the mixing part. you want to take what your using as the base. im choosing vaseline, and put it on teh plate, now this is perfectlly healthy for your lips. after you do that you want to go ahead and take your eyeshadow color by choice and mix it well into a color paste, you don't want eyeshadow chunks in it. when completelly mixed, you can put it into your jar, let it sit in you fridge for about an hour to an hour and a half and let it cool and set that way. you can apply some on your lips when it's done :D so i shared how to make your own lipgloss. it's nothing fancy, what do you guys think about this?? do you know any other way to make it??

That's a good idea! I sometimes mix my foundation (a tan-beige color) with a bold lip-gloss to kind of tone it down and make it look a little more natural. :)

It is interesting. I never mind that we can do this. The problem will be find a eyeshadow with the right color to make a lipstick. But it is interesting and I thank you to share it with us.
